The wheels were split and again glued together. I love woodworking. First destroy and then reassemble.

Below the process

Thanks for watching

That is quite a detailed description!
I like step by step pictures with explanations.
And that is quite a number of extremely detailed wheels/tires!

Love the look of the finished tyre. What model is it for as the shape doesn’t look familiar? Does the end product look like that in the plans or is it your personal derivative? If it is yours, may I plagiarize (steal) it?

Alex for each wheel you will make you have to donate 1$. :) The wheels are used for a hydraulic crane and almost according the T&J plans. However I had also made this wheels for a golf cart and that was before T&J came with the hydraulic crane plans.
